Students to perform innovative satire
March 4, 2013
KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Kutztown University's Department of Communication Studies and Theatre presents Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, by Bert V. Royal. Directed by Professor Roxane Rix, performances will take place on the KU campus in the Rickenbach Theatre, room 135 of the Rickenbach Learning Center. Performances are at 8 p.m. on April 17, 18, 19, 25 and 26 and at 2 p.m. on April 27.
The play, which propels everyone's favorite Peanuts kids into high school, begins by shattering the idyllic imagery of the original cast with the euthanasia of beloved dog Snoopy. With his demise, the audience knows that the characters we have seen all our lives in the Peanuts comics are now in a different, harsher world. Royal's play brings us into new territory - one in which the Peanuts gang must confront all the difficulties faced by contemporary teens. The results are both eye-opening and startling.
